  • RT: “This weekend we’re at Bristol Motor Speedway and I’m really excited to have Food City on the car; it’s their 100th anniversary so hopefully we can get them a good run. Bristol is all about survival. You’ve got to get to the end of the race and you’ve got to have all of the fenders on it, keep it out of trouble. Hopefully we’ll have a good car. Bristol’s a tough track, like I said, and with all of the new additions they’ve done, the VHT they’ve put down and the grinding of the top lane…it makes it really tough to find a good balance. So we’ll work hard in practice and have ourselves a good race. Hopefully we can get a top-five, get some momentum and keep this thing going.”
